Got a new router from Costco, $100 plus tax. It is named as Extreme Range Dual Band Gigabit Router. Extreme Range, means it can cover a large house. Dual Band means 2.4G and 5G work at same time. Gigabit means it has Gigabit Lan ports and Wan port.
It is not my first D-Link router. My first one is WBR-1310 Wireless router. I bought it 5 years ago. I feel comfortable with D-Link products.
Open the box, and look inside.
There are the router, cable, power adapter and a card with default wifi ssid, pass, etc.
I took everthing out and here they are.
Let us have a closer look. First, look the back, four Lan ports, one WAN port, one USB port, WPS button, and power button.
And, look at the top. You can see I was not hold the camera steadily.
There are a lot of louvers on the bottom. Yes, after a few hours using, it is warm.
There are a lot of features of DIR-845L.
